The tutors make the subject interesting too, they don’t simply regurgitate information, but engage with students, encouraging opinions and initiating discussions.

“During my Law studies I’ve found that what makes Edge Hill University extra special is the tutors. They always have time to support you and are all, without exception, very approachable. Whenever I’ve found myself unsure about something I have always been able to turn to the lecturers who have made it their business to help.

The tutors make the subject interesting too, they don’t simply regurgitate information, but engage with students, encouraging opinions and initiating discussions. Their passion comes across clearly in lectures and seminars, and through providing a number of optional modules you also get to study what you enjoy most, which then reflects in your marks.

As completing a Law degree involves a great deal of research from a variety of sources it has been great that Edge Hill provides access to a wide range of resources too, including a mass of books and electronic journals.

One particularly useful experience has been the Employability module, which required us to submit CVs and covering letters to employers. This actively encouraged us to make professional contacts and helped us to focus on what we want to do once we have completed our studies.

The course also provides an opportunity to undertake some work experience which is arranged through the University. Seeing the industry in action and gaining some practical skills is absolutely invaluable for your future employability.

During my time at Edge Hill I’ve also been heavily involved with the Law and Criminology Society which has helped me to develop good relationships with students across all year groups on my course. I’m also very proud that I was able to represent Edge Hill in an external mooting competition and found being part of the team a true privilege.

I thoroughly enjoy studying Law and find the subject really engaging. Through seeing how the tutors here make such a difference to the entire experience I’d now like to go on and become a lecturer myself.”
